'"Holmes!" I cried. "Is it really you? Can it indeed be that you are alive? Is it possible that you succeeded in climbing out of that awful abyss?'. The one and only Sherlock Holmes is sensationally back from the dead, and devoting his life once more to examining the criminal complexities of the capital. Cases of mysterious codes, persecuted millionaires, stalkers, abductions and a meeting with 'the worst man in London' are all attacked with renewed vigour.

4.0 Holmes & Watson Have an Abusive Relationship
After killing off Holmes at the end of Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, Doyle left the character alone for 10 years before giving in to public pressure and bringing him back in Return of Sherlock Holmes.

2.0 The Return of Sherlock Holmes
I can't express just how disappointed I am with Holmes' return. Doyle may not have wanted the detective to come back from Reichenbach Falls, but he ought to have been able to conjure up something better than the explanation we're given in "The Adventure of the Empty House".
